Downtown
Last Fall we asked downtown Renton small business owners to fill out a survey to help the Renton Downtown Partnership focus energy on the things that matter most.  Big thank you to those that took the time to submit a survey response! We loved hearing your feedback and have already been busy addressing the largest areas of concern.
 
Four main elements were identified in the survey as areas needing immediate support: 1) Help with Clean-Up and Aesthetics; 2) Create Opportunities for Networking with Local Peers; 3) Organize More Events; and 4) Address Safety and Security Concerns.
 
Scroll over the tiles below to see what actions the Renton Downtown Partnership has taken during the first half of 2022 to address these focus areas:

Help with Clean-Up and Aesthetics

The Design Committee is developing a plan to get more light pole banners installed and the Economic Vitality Committee now organizes quarterly clean-up events! The next clean-up will be held on September 10th:

We encourage our small business owners to continue to provide feedback when opportunities arise, as it truly helps our Board members, staff, and volunteers to direct attention to what is most important to our beloved downtown Renton business owners!
